And just like that I'm back to square one. The cloth didn't dye properly. After I washed it is super faded in parts almost looks like its weathered. Super depressing and a rather expensive mess up.

Hang in there. I had so many setbacks, some of which where more expensive than I would have liked. You'll make it in the end!

I just got to work so I'll post some tomorrow. The color is way to dark too. I don't think the tub I used allowed to fabric to move freely enough. When more fabric comes in, think I can borrow the tub you used?

If you have time on Sat, maybe I can come up and look it all over. Let me know (it would have to be before 2pm). Text is best (801-687-3385).

So far it's just the fabric. I can send pictures of it but I'm not sure its worth a trip to see, but thank you for the offer. It's much appreciated. I should be getting the robe/hood sewn up in January.

Rit has dye remover that can lighten the color. And weathered looking fabric is good for a Jawa. Mine has places it looks like that too. Don't give up! A lot of things can be fixed with dying fabric.
